Had a great time with the folks at crossroads BJJ gym. I'm a visitor from out of town and the welcomed me in. No attitudes nothing but friendly folks! Their professor Dustin Rhodes is very knowledgeable and inviting. I got a chance to roll with him and even though he could shut me down with every move you was light and respectful of my abilities. This is reflected in his students. Not one meathead in the bunch �. Any way, top notch. Thanks for letting me train with you all!

Cool men and women that enjoy learning and helping one another get better. Quality of instruction is very good, and it’s obvious that a lot of care is put into the development of the trainees. Nothing is free so you’ll have to put in the time on the mats to progress. Be prepared to discover the many stages of white belt. Great exercise and a lot of fun learning a useable skill that not many people out there know.

Jiu-Jitsu CT: Consistent effort over time

The only way to earn a black in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or any martial art is consistent effort over time. The main benifit of having a consistent schedule on the mat is it allows you to have something you are working on over several weeks or even months of training. Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art which relies heavily on problem solving, which is why several of our students are engineers at Electric Boat.

When you first begin using any Jiu-Jitsu technique with resistance more often then not the bjj technique will fail, in order to make the Jiu-Jitsu technique work you must observe what your bjj training partner is doing to stop your technique and then modify your technique to stop what they are doing to shut down your technique. The better you get at Jiu-Jitsu the more Jiu-Jitsu problems you have solved. Solving these problems over and over again allows you to  solve problems that you have never encountered before in real time. Solving a particular problem may take several weeks of training making it essential to be on the mat to find the answer.
